Berry producers commit to 100% recycle-ready packaging by 2025


Berry growers and trade associations across North America just announced an industry-wide goal to use 100% recycle-ready packaging by 2025. The collaboration includes a commitment to new label standards and an agreement to encourage consumer recycling.

The groups who are making the pledge include the California Strawberry Commission, the North American Blueberry Council, Asociación Nacional de Exportadores de Berries in Mexico, members of the National Berry Crops Initiative and South American exporters like Argentinean Blueberry Committee, Chilean Blueberry Committee and Peru’s ProArandanos.

Kasey Cronquist, president of NABC, said in a statement that teaming up allows growers, shippers and industry partners to “attain a goal that no one organization could accomplish alone.”
